Luke Fiorelli, owner of Fiorelli Exteriors, submitted a bid to design the gardens for Barrington Properties new hotel, currently under construction. In the split second it had taken for that bid packet to change hands, something miraculous passed between Luke and Travis Barrington III. Luke had known, for an absolute certainty, that the job would be his. Travis also felt the instant attraction to Luke. However, openly gay Travis is waiting for still-in-the closet Luke to admit they share the same wishes.

Once Upon A Secret is a well written seductive love story. The characters are believable. Luke is hesitant to break the close bond he has with his family by revealing he is gay. Luke finally realizes that maybe his family already suspects this is the case, given the fact that he is a mature man who has never shown any interest in having girlfriends. Luke and Travis are an ideal match in qualities. Both men are intelligent, as well as realistic concerning the developing relationship, family, and their careers. Luke and Travis ease into the liaison, respecting each other’s desires. The love scenes are breathtaking, inspiring a warm and cozy feeling all over. Christiane France has created a marvelous saga that I enjoyed immensely.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I love all my characters, but there's something just that little bit extra special about Luke and Travis and I'm so glad it came through.
